Parent class: Analyzed-population


Documentation: "Descriptions of particular subgroups, defined in relation to an intervention group (experimental or comparison or all trial participants), or to other subgroups recursively. Thus, the |subgroup-of| slot must point to an INTERVENTION-POPULATION, or to another SUBGROUP-POPULATION. The assumption here is that the population of which this subgroup is an immediate subgroup will itself always be worth defining if this subgroup is being defined."

subgroup-of "Allows the recursive definition of subgroups in which the subgroup at each level can be have outcomes associated with it. e.g., separate outcomes for each of the subgroup of all males of the subgroup of all diabetics of the subgroup of all assigned to placebo. Alternatively, a single subgroup could be defined with all the criteria applied at once (e.g., the subgroup of male diabetics assigned to control)." Instance Analyzed-population 0:1

roles "Tells which class and slot will take instances of this class depending on the role of the instance. The format is (role OWNER-CLASS |owner-slot|) e.g., if this class is DATE and the instance's role is recruitment-start-date, (recruitment-start-date RECRUITMENT |start-date|) tells us that this instance of date should be the value of the slot |start-date| in an instance of class RECRUITMENT."
